Full video of Jon Jones court appearance, plea bargain for UFC 197 return

Jon Jones walking around in an orange jump suit, calling everyone "sir" is tough to watch, especially if you're used to the light heavyweight savage who runs the 205-pound shop.

Let's hope this is the last time.

"Bones" found himself back in court this week after a traffic stop went sour and landed him in jail. The good news is, the judge allowed him to go free under these strict conditions, which means the UFC 197 pay-per-view (PPV) main event remains intact.

That means Daniel Cormier can return the division strap to its rightful owner on April 23, 2016, when they collide inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Or, if what "DC" says is true, prove the belt has found itself a new home since Jones was put in time out.

We'll find out in roughly three weeks.

Hopefully Jones can keep himself out of trouble until then.
